He was cd Amny at work and awkward at play and even hair Rich a different then Why did they make him of May yes blithely in a Circle they whirled around their King and there he stood halt Ervinjr half pleased to hear them sing till in his heart a mighty part was of Owen him to do emotion thrilled u s Little breast and him Fervour new ill to n that i thought. It Isu t much. I of do of Sang they and we win Crown you King of ill do it yes i la do his heart Back again until a Ray of loveliness came to his face so Plain. His eyelids quivered he almost shivered his Young form stood when Manly thoughts stir Boyish souls what else can you expect and still they Sang their round Lay the circling girls so s Weet and Gay about their King their King of May hark the King is in Oakins the eager girls press near. He says aloud ill do in ringing voice and Clear. And from his pocket As from a socket slowly he Drew it he looked to East he looked to West he looked to South and the skies their Best Assurance gave twas Noble to be kind and Brave. He Drew it Forth to gave it Over As though he were each maid a s Lover. As though it were his life. The thing they d begged for hours and hours to Cut the May pole vines and that Little Rascal s knife a see them see them Well a Day How gleefully they skip away. Leaving alone their King of May his Brief reign ended. Well a Day Alki Enve s Story. It was never Happy at aunt Browns but there seemed no Prospect that i should leave her. I had come out so to speak Asiar As any one so repressed could come out Bat i might As Well staid in. I Only sat in Corners talked the chaperone or listened to some garrulous octogenarian. Aunt Brown s interest in such As it was died a Nat ural death after my first had always teen the result was a sad deficiency in my wardrobe. She had married off two daughters without difficulty but a neice it seems stuck closer than a Burr. However it was not my Lault that i remained unmarried. Had done my Best to be fascinating. Though i hated the idea of marrying Tor Home or position i was Suie i i should not find it hard the lore one that was kind to me if Only on account of the Novelty. I was thirty now and not unused to hearing the changes rung upon old maids and the beggars who should t to choosers by my younger cousins Susette and Annie. But i had had one Opportunity to change for better or worse of which they had never dreamed. The son of aunt Browne s second husband Cedric Browne had asked me to marry him three years before As we rowed up 1 the River in june for the Rosy Laurel blooms to decorate the House and piazzas for Susette s birthday Etc. 1 sometimes wondered what aunt Browne would have thought of the proceeding As she had set her heart upon marrying Susette to Cedric. Perhaps i refused him because i was taken unawares because i was not enough interested to care about frustrating aunt Browne s plans perhaps i did not expect to be taken at my word but imagined it the proper Way to decline in order to be import Ned. I believe All my favorite heroines had conducted in this Wise. However we rowed Home through the Sunset our boat heaped with the Pink Flowers in silence. You look As if you were Laden with Sunset said Susette who was watching for us on the Shore but i am certain Cedric Looker he a Thunder clued. The next Jay the fete. 1 very body brought presents for Pasette. Cedric gave her an antique necklace of Tor sure to had meant it for me. To had supper out of Doois under the great Pitie Trues and dancing in the that and fro canvass ing the subject. I feared he had made a mistake As i had renewed my Flor some Little while before but had received no reply still a dozen things happen to let ters every yes Ana something happened to i said. Years when Susette and Anne were married when Adele s husband had taken the children Home to a new Mamma and aunt Browne had gone to the land of the when Cedric was repairing the old House Tor a summer residence in ripping away the ancient Dado in the music room which had Al ways warped away from the Rall in warm weather leaving a Little crack the carpenters unearthed my lost letter. Had it slipped Down there or had aunt Browne Given it a push we give her Tho Benefit of the b a double turn of Fortune. When Albert Wickliff and Eva Stan Field first plighted their tron what a fruit Able match it would be was the Universal comment. Both were Young and handsome the fathers of both were wealthy and every thing connected with their love drifted along so smoothly that both sighed for a Little something to give the current a romantic Ripple. Trouble in this world is not always sighed for in vain. Sudden As a Thunder clap one Day came the announcement that or. Wickliff Albert s father was a ruined Man. The catastrophe seemed As great a sur prise to himself As to every body else. But the fallen merchant was too proud and honorable to attempt to secure anything from the wreck of his Fortune at Pic expense of his creditors. Every Deot was paid to the utmost Farthing and he was left penniless. The Strain and Shock proved too much for or. Wickli3 s strength and in less than a month after his failure he Sank under his misfortunes from which he found Refuge in the grave. In the eyes of or. Stanfield Albert wic Klitt s qualifications for the Post of son in Law underwent a Radical change As that Young gentleman was right Speed ily Given to understand. To the father of a Marriageable daughter there is a wide difference Between a suitor plus handsome Fortune and the same Sailor minus any Fortune at All. But in Eva s eyes. Albert was the same forever and in Upite of therly authority Clung to her first Choice and in due time the pair were married. Or Stanfield was so much incensed at his daughter s resolved to disinherit her and being a widower and having no other child to leave his Fortune to he called in a lawyer and made a will Geoffrey Earle a Distant relative whom he had scarcely Ever seen and for whom he did not care a Straw. But Albert Wickliff and his Young wife were too full of Home and happiness to care for loss of Fortune. Albert found employment which enabled him to maintain a pleasant Little Home where a fond Welcome awaited him on his daily toil and in time there was a fair haired Bright coed boy to add his charming prattle to Tho Welcome. Or. Stanfield never forgave Eva. Not even when the hand of affliction fell up on him and she offered to come and minister at his bedside would he con sent to see her and he died at last uttering no word of Pardon. Poor Eva grieved Long and deeply Over her Falner s death. Though she could not reproach herself for having kept Faith in his adversity with him whom she had chosen in Prosperity it added materially to the keenness of her sorrow to think that her Parent s resentment had been carried to the grave. But further troubles were in store. Hard times came and Albert lost his situation Eva had easily acquired the lesson of frugality. She could out refining on their Humble income. But when that was gone and Annj want stood at the door her courage Well nigh yielded. It broke her heart to use her husband s Haggard face and note his anxious efforts to conceal from her his cares. Christ Mas was near at hand and when Little Charley began to prattle of Santa Glaus and the one things of which he already saw himself the possessor by the Eye of Faith Eva had to turn away to hide her tears. One morning the landlord came to de Mand his rent. The Money was not forthcoming and albeit could give no definite Assurance As to when it would be. Then you must find other was the Grunt remark with which the Man took his leave. Of lilt was almost with feeling a of despair that Albert took his hat to depart on his daily seach for employment. Little Charley ran to receive the accustomed Good Bye kiss. Santa Taus Tome soon he asked. I Hope his father answered in a voice which lessened Charley s Faith by several degrees. A cried lawyer Lam prey slapping Albert on the Back As they it Tjit some hours later by George you re in Luck in answer to the other s surprised look or. Lamprey continued you remember Myron Dyke your father s eld everybody thought him poor Tou i always believed him so especially after he lost his place on my father s Well you and All the rest were much mistaken. He died yesterday leaving Ever so Many thousands snugly invested. He seems to have been a perfect miser pretending to be As poor As Lazarus while in he had a huge Fortune Secre try Albert looked incredulous. I have the Best reason. For knowing the truth of Wjt i persisted the lawyer. Sick last weak Anil for economical reasons put off calling a doctor till too late. At last he got fright ened and sent for doctor dead March who told him it was All up with him. Old dead March is remarkably candid in Suph matters and the a men Sage from or. Dyke requesting me to come and prepare his will. " i have neither Chick nor he said but there s an act of Justice i d like to do before going through the final Clearing "1 bogged him to explain his wishes. " everything 1 he got by robbing my late employer. I did it by degrees and in a manner to excite no suspicion. This was the cause cowardly and a cowardly brute is use ally vicious. Then i like a Square muzzle with Large nostrils to let in plenty of air to the lungs. For the underside of a head a Good horse Well Cut under the jowl with jaw Bones bad apart under the throttle. I so much for the e he continued. Nest thing to consider is the of the animal. Never buy a Long legged Silty horse. Let him have n Short straight Back and a straight Rump Aad you be got a gentleman s horse. The Withers should be High and the shoulders Well set Back and Broad but Don t get them too deep in the Chest. The fore legs should be Short. Give me a pretty straight Hind leg with the Bock Low Down Short Postern joins and a round. Mullish foot. There Are All kinds of horses but the animal that has these Points is almost sure to be slightly Graceful Good natured and As to color tastes differ. Bays Browns Aud chestnuts Are the Best. Roans Are very fashionable at present. A great Many Gray and Sorrels Are bought Here for shipment to Mexico and Cuba. They do Well in a hot climate under a tropical Sun for the same reason that you find Light coloured clothing most serviceable in summer. That circus horse behind you is what Many p eople Call a Calico horse now i Call him a genuine Piebald. It s a Freak of nature and May happen any Prophet c urae me the blabbing the mischief that an Idle Tongue can do is a sum past calculation. For As the apostle says a ittle matter kindles a great fare and the spark is dropped by that Idle Tongue without a thought of consequences which sends the conflagration tur wide. That Short Iru peo ple too close mouthed for any in their society is not to be denied but bet Ter is the strictest and so Refat Reserve than that loosely Bridd cd habit of speech which never pauses for a second thought and deals havoc right and left although it May be with no unkind intention. Probably it would be Good for people possessed of this habit to recollect that it is Only the wings of a gnat that Flap fifteen thousand times in a second. These babbling lips As Tenneyson Calls them will undergo a sort of Classi fication1 in three different orders one that thinks absolute frankness and truth fullness can be maintained Only by Al ways telling All one knows about every thing whether it is the listener s business or not and that to keep anything to one s self is a suppress to Veri another who talks on the impulse and without taking the trouble to think if it is Best to speak or be silent although always and a third who talks Tor the Sake of talking and revels maliciously enviously revenge fully in spread ing evil report. The first is a very gos sip in All simplicity a individual too frequently of transparent Folly a Well of information where every neighbor the last sometimes adds a spice to life by the peculiarly pungent Way of looking at things and reporting them and born of them Are known for what they Are and so although the harm they do is immense it is not so unfathomable As that of the second or the impulsive and purely Idle and thoughtless Tongue. If everybody with whom one talks knew All the co relations of things and could weigh trifles at their Worth and had no or Ranfors it might not do so much mischief for one to flaunt the virtue of unrestricted Frank Ness but As that presupposes a Universal omniscience and infinite Benevolence which do not belong to humanity it is impossible to Tell All one knows either with Wisdom or righteousness and there is always a Root of selfishness and love of pleasure at the base of this order of talk to say nothing of the flagrant disregard of the Rule of doing unto others As you would have them do unto you manifested both by the singularly Frank and the singularly malicious talker. And if everybody were of Saint like kindliness the venom of the malicious talker would Roll off innocently As Dew Rolls off a cab Bage Leaf. Bui As these Are the Only conditions under which either of these two talkers last alluded to might display their Powers freely and these conditions Are impossible it follows that silence would better become them. But we can imagine no circumstances under which it would be Best for the thoughtless talker to have unrestricted play. The use of the Tongue like All our other Gitts is something god Given Aud As such is sacred. We have no right to play the profligate with it and their is even a species of profanity in its thought less use. The drop of water that drips from the fingers to the Palm tin Felt tails like a Bullet deep Shaft of the mine and the word launched into Infin Ity acquires More Force with every moment of passing time. Professor you mans tells us that we May easily hear the song of a Little Bird five Hundred Leet above us but before that note could have travelled to our ears it must have filled with wave pulsations a sphere of air one thousand feet in diameter or have thrown into agitation nearly eighteen toes of atmospheric and if such things Are True concerning merely material and physical affairs now great is the growing momentum of the mean ing of every spoken work certain Phil Siphers hold that each material object in the universe has its spiritual correspondence or counterpart like that of the body and its ghost. And thus if the word if sound be the mater Ial thing the significance of that word the effect of that sound disturbs with its violations tie spiritual if the Hunter m the Frozen air of the upper Alps a we Are told Bounds from Peak to Peak speechless and silent lest any sound to makes should dislodge the Ava Lanche and hurl All about and below to destruction it would seem As it the Moet nip to headed Babbler might have As much thought concerning the disastrous consequences of the echoing and re Echo ing or Idle that May dislodge lives from their Happy ways and ruin souls. Doubtless if they paused think of this a Well As of Tho next word Thoy said the poet would cease to find a cause Tor his mad hero to cry out so wildly Prophet Curso me the babbling too much exercise. Iti a fit of remorse a gentleman who had encouraged a Friend of his to take More physical exercise to expand his Chest and Duvo lop Hia Muscles gives to the new York times the unfortunate results of his Experiment. He had read and was strongly impressed by Blaikie s Book of instruction How to get he gave the Book to his Young Friend who. Having read it determined to take a course of daily physical exercise. This Young Man about Twenty six years of age was tall and slender. He had just returned from a business trip to the tropics and was a Good health but not robust. His Chest was Flat arid narrow and his Muscles Small and flac Cid lie agreed with his elder acquaint Ance that both needed development. So to set to work. It was in the first months of the sum Mer of 1788. He began first with three Pound dumb Bells using them every morning and taking a walk of two or three Miles later in the Day. Hia mus cles Boon showed improvement his Appe Tite increased and he was doing himself apparently great Good. After a few weeks he increased the size of his dumb Bells to five pounds and lengthened his walk to four Miles a Day with still apparent pod effects and then anxious to expand his Chest by other exercise having More direct effect upon it he took to rowing on the Harlem River every morning taking a pleasant pull at the oars. His fare was Plain and simple a cup of Coffee and some biscuit before starting and after his aquatic constitutional a substantial meal. Noon the picture of robust health Brown As a Berry with knots of Muscles on the Bacus of his shoulders. His sleep was sound his digestion excellent his appetite ravenous. Thus be continued growing robust for two or the months until he became the envy his Fellows. Every Day he took a cold Shower Bath followed by a brisk abrasion of the skin with a flesh Brush. On Days when they could not Row he walked to the moderate extent of five Miles. He was comparatively moderate in exercise with the oars. He was tem Perate in All things and a splendid Spir its Metal Aad physical. So car the Experiment was a Success. Early in september however a Small some like a pimple on one of his thou Louis jiul his right wrist Pecan e stiff my Sligo by swollen. The re fused to heal and the sufi neat of the wrist increased till to had to give up rowing. From that time he Igau to run Down headache soreness swelled Ankles and wrists Ami general symptoms of debility set in and before december to seemed to be thoroughly used then it was thought Best to consult a physician and one of the most eminent in new York was called in. He was thoroughly examined. The heart and lungs kidney and liver were pronounced sound. He was simply run Down and needed rest. The physician prescribed a tonic plenty of substantial nourishing food and All the sleep possible and under this regime the Yoong Man is slowly recovering the vitality he lost during the sum Mer when he thought he was putting new life and strength into himself. The physician who had him in charge said he had on his visit Nef list a Large number of Young men who had been leaders in collegiate athletic sports and who had used themselves up physically some of them beyond recovery. If they live they will be prematurely old men. Too much exercise is As bad As no exer Cise if not worse. Just where the Golden Means is must be determined by individual experience. Perhaps the time to quit is when one feels the first symptom of fatigue or weariness. Yes. He could. New Bonnet new Dol Lars for a new exclaimed or. Slick the other evening As his wife suggested a change from the Winter styles. Yes Only twelve she humbly replied. Dollars for a Bonnet is a con founded outrage and i know he went on. Why i can buy two Fine silk hats for that Money and have some Strawberry change Letl. It s a dead swindle to ask twelve dollars Tor a Well i can t do any better or. Slick. That is the Price and i must pay it or go you Don t know How to what ails he la bet Money that i can buy a twelve Dollar Bonnet eight dollars. It is All in knowing How to handle the i wish you d try i George i will i la bring you up a new Bonnet in the morning and i la get it four dollars cheaper than you dare or. Slick was As Good As his word. He went into a millinery store next Forenoon with Eyeteeth All sharpened and with the idea in his mind that every Bonnet in the store was priced at exactly twelve dollars. He looked around a Little Selec Ted a Bonnet that pleased him and Point ing his Cane at it and calling up Bis deep est voice he inquired Are Yon asking twelve dollars for that the woman flushed looked from the Bonnet to Tho Man and was trying to re ply when he said Are not the times for outrageous prices and All buyers realize it. I la give you eight dollars for that Bonnet and not a cent eight dollars and no he interrupted and Ste put the article in a Box and took his Money. What d 1 Tell my wife whispered he As he went out. I Tell you it takes a Man to buy goods no matter whether it s Fence posts or paper when he 6at Down at Home and took the cover off the Box and held up the Bonnet mrs. Slick asked How much did she charge eight dollars Madam while you would have paid Richard 1" she said As she to laugh All Over at once. I was with the lady next door when she ordered that Bonnet for her Cook and the Price was to be four dollars. Yon see he held up his Finger counted three fives out of his Wallet and left them on a chair for her. Who owns the land in England. More than half the soil of the United kingdom is nominally owned by some persons. According to a valuable analysis of the very ill arranged and in Complete Parli mediary return of the land owners of the United kingdom published in the financial Reform record for 1878, 421 persons Are the owners of acres or nearly acres More than one fourth of the total area of the United kingdom. The mind is unable to grasp what such a monopoly costs the country but certain features of it stand Forth with a prominence sufficiently notable. In a most absolute sense the Well being of the entire population of some souls is placed in the Power of a few thousands for these thousands the multitude toils and it May be on occasion starves. Hence we have continually before us that most saddening of All spectacles two or three families living in great splendor and hard by their Gates the miserably poor the slaves of the soil whose some Hope in life is too often the that famous device against revolution paid for by the Middle the pauper s grave. Our land owners have not merely burdened the land with their game preserves they have tied it up and actively conspired to prevent Ita due cultivation. Instead of rising to the True necessities of the Case they cling to their game make penal enactments about it and struggle to augment the intensity of the evil which it is to the people As it the very existence of the country depend hares and rabbits. In his absolute supremacy the landowner overrides All Justice takes precedence of Alt Ordinary creditors on h a helpless tenants and controls the system of cultivation of ten in utter disregard of private rights or private judgement and in addition secures to himself tin absolute reversion of every improvement which the tenant May make on Magazine. Claude Melnotte in Keai life. Mrs. Hooper to the it Iladel Plain Telegraph i recently told by Young French Guu Lemaw to Boson of the prefect of la out it the Stran Gest romances tit Ivy thut came to my know Filp. Cd one four years ago a peasant boy who lived on a farm new the town of Clakr mint Forrand saw and fell in love with the Beautiful daughter of a gentleman of Good Fortune and position he being i Ilia time seventeen years of age Hui the you lady just sixteen. This new Claude so madly in love that lie went straight to the House of the Young girl s parents and demanded her hand in marriage. The lather treated the preposterous proposition with Good natured Pecorn. Back when you have an income of 000 was his answer and then we win see about it the infatuated youth took him at Bis word and forthwith to work. Now one Orlif of the town of Oln rout flt Tuii a of water. There i no River near it so it relies for its water Supply on Springs and Wells. Vaar the a circumstances a Spring is a valuable piece of property and commands a relatively High Price. To the Young peasant Lover get Oft Lor an adjacent Mountain there to search Tor hidden Springs. My informant said that he had Boney need the whole Side or. The Ino Cutaia with his works constructing at one Point a Tunnel Over two Miles in length. A Tom was executed with his own hands. He works from Dawn to dark lives upon potatoes of his own. And never spends so Sou upon a Mug of Beer. Every sunday he goes to mass in the town after which he proceeds to the House of Bis lady love to ask if she is married or Likely to be. On receiving a response n the negative he plods contentedly homeward and starts out afresh to Bis toil on the Morrow. This life has continued now for full four years. Up to the present time he has discovered three important Springs each of which he has sold for but though now possessed of what for a Man in his condition of life is wealth be abates none of Tho hardships of exist ence. He has one idea namely to be come tie possessor 01 a Fortune sufficient to enable Finui to claim the hand of the object of his Blind passion. Yet no one who knows the parties even imagines that the Young lady will Ever consent to marry him. She is now Twenty years of age and pretty refined ind accomplished while he is a coarse unlettered peasant without even physical comeliness As he is Short and Thicket with a Broad and sol id countenance. What will the end of his dream i wonder my informant told me that the Story was True in every particular he had himself visited the works and entered the curious Tunnel and been presented to this new Jacob willing to serve even then seven years for his Rachel. Gems of thought. Faint not the Miles to heaven Are but few and Short. Clothe and wrap yourself in humility so that it shall be impossible to tear from you this covering. There is a Blessing attending the ministration of mercy. The luxury of doing Good surpasses every other personal enjoyment. The Humble Man though surrounded with the score and reproach of the world is still in peace for the stability of his peace rest eth not upon the world but upon god. While we Wrangle Here a the dark we Are dying Aud passing to the world that will decide All our controversies and the safest passage thither is by peaceable holiness. A Voung in in cannot recover the loss he suffers Here in practice of bad habits though by patience and godly sorrow he May regain the celestial companionship of his Mother in heaven. Every Man ought to Endeavor at Emi Nence not by pulling others Down but by raising enjoy tie pleasure of his own imaginary or interrupting others in the same Felicity. The shortest and surest Way to live with Honor in the world is to be in re Unity what we would appear to be and if we observe we shall find that All human Virtues increase Aud strengthen them selves by the of them. We look Back to former times and the struggles that then were and wish we had been helpers in the fight but there is honorable warfare now. Or Havo not the Cour age to do it it we can see neither should we have had vision 01 courage then. Infinite toil would not enable you to sweep away a but by ascending a Little you Niue often look Over it All to Gether.
